E-Keno Stripped From Gambling Bill
*Audio Versio Of Story Below*
A proposal to let people play keno on their mobile phones in Nebraska bars and keno parlors stalled abruptly after lawmakers stripped it out of a casino legalization bill.
Opponents of electronic keno, like Senator Mike Hilgers argued that voters didn’t directly address keno when they approved the constitutional amendment to allow casinos.
Lawmakers voted 27-11 to remove the provision from a broader bill that would regulate Nebraska’s new casino industry.
